Computers tits again…

From  Adam Mint on Mon 11 Apr 2016 – 21:20

Two questions…

Computer (notebook) went tits up again a couple days until we went on holiday, had only paid a hundred and thirty odd quid at PC World roughly a month earlier getting it fixed but it’s not the same fault, just will not boot up, get the Tobisha screen then only comes to a halt,, so took it to back to PC World, they think that it’s the hard drive however want #50 to ship it away to find out just what’s wrong, I said I’ll consider it…
Have spoke to mates who are into computers and they think that it’s the hard drive aswell, needed to look on Internet they range from thirty five quid to hundreds, still should recognize the correct one, if it’s it’s cheap I’ll give it a go, but when it’s dear or do not work any guidance on which to choose, just looking for something cheap, all of my info is to a memory stickand computer functions on Windows 7 plus that I want words and excel… 

Next thing, I’m using IPad in this time but need to perform a box chart that I can update daily, not an excel spreadsheet only a box chart, can I do that to the iPad…

Hard Disk – they are 2.5″ drives in laptops, anything that size must fit.

Box Chart – what applications do you use at the moment?     There are several online packages which may be used including Excel, free of charge.

Thanks, I’ll determine the hard disk and inquire again as exactly what to choose, didn’t know you could only pick and picked anyone, thought it’d have been required to be much like for like replacement,,, another query, notebook came with Windows 7 pre installed, will that still be there or else is it on the memory stick matter that PC World downloaded all of my information on to if they done last repair…

About the box chart thing, I have never used the iPad for anything other than “entertainment” have never tried to perform box-charts, spreadsheets etc onto it ,,, there’s a “Notes” thing on it which I have used to write letters onto pre emailing them but that is the most technical thing I’ve ever done on it as I used the computer for everybody else…

You can tell I’m really on those computer things,,, I’d have a look online at how to change the hard disk, I even took it out and gave it a little small slap round before refitting it made no difference…

Should you look at the current hard disk is, it will let you know on the tag what model and make it is and exactly what it has potential is.

Use that advice, have a look online for similar capacity 2.5″ drives or soda into PCW or Maplins using the actual disk and they will be able to supply you with a fresh compatible disk drive.

Together with all the memory stick, it depends upon upon how PCW did the copy.     It will not be there, if they only backed up your data, it Ought to Be there, when they did a full backup.     When the notebook was bought by you, did it come with media or was it a case of you having to create your personal applications backup disks by conducting a preloaded utility once you had set up the laptop the way you desired it ??

I ain’t looked in the memory pole to learn what they put on it as had no need to, so don’t know if it’s there, would try and discover out through use of a friends computer…

Cannot remember if any disks came with the notebook, notebook has a sticker on it stating “Windows 7 Installed”

Will take a look at that “Office on a iPad” thing…
